Transactions Law

The area of transactions law broadly covers all legally documented transaction between two or more individuals or entities.  This kind of transaction occurs whenever you rent or buy a house, purchase a vehicle, lend money, establish a bailment, form a private contract, or document the settlement of a private dispute.  At Idaho Law Group, we customize these documents to ensure their reliable and superior performance.  

As attorneys with extensive litigation experience, we’ve seen firsthand the costly results of  using cheap legal forms.  A major factor in many private and commercial litigations is the ambiguous and deficient nature of the parties’ written (or unwritten) agreements.  And while even a sound legal document cannot anticipate and prevent all future problems, it can and will act as a major deterrent to litigation and promote better transactional relationships.

FAQ’s

HOW LONG BEFORE MY CASE GOES TO TRIAL?

Each case is different. Depending on the nature of your claims, the legal and factual issues involved, and the disposition of the other parties, your case may continue anywhere from a few months to a few years or more before going to trial. That is why we spend time with each client assessing the likely timetables and financial commitments involved.

ARE THERE ALTERNATIVES TO TRIAL?

A lawsuit (and even a potential lawsuit) can settle at any point, even in the midst of trial. We like to explore your settlement options early on so that you can retain full control of your case progress. Settlement can be as simple as over-the-phone attorney negotiations, or as formal as arbitration. If we ever receive a settlement offer from the other party(s), you are always the first to know and have the right to accept or reject it.

HOW OFTEN CAN I CALL YOU AS A CLIENT?

As often as you’d like to. Some clients prefer, as a cost-savings measure, to receive trial updates only as necessary. Other’s like to have regular and frequent contact. And while we can’t promise that we’ll return every phone call, email, or text message that same-day, we do promise that they will never be missed or ignored. And our calendar is always open whenever you’d like to schedule a phone or live appointment. Since we have no ‘favorite clients’, your time is just as valuable to us as the next case, and we strive to be fair and available for all your needs.

HOW EXPENSIVE IS LITIGATION?

Litigation will cost as much as it takes to achieve your goals. Settlement, for instance, will often be much less expensive than full litigation. In all our cases, we require an initial retainer payment, with an agreement on your part for ongoing funding as required. Because finances matter, we don’t start working until you have a clear idea of the time and costs involved.

DO YOU HANDLE APPEALS?

Yes. Because even a good case can be poorly decided by a judge or jury, Idaho provides for appeal to the Idaho Appellate Courts (Court of Appeals and Idaho Supreme Court). Appeals can be long and expensive, but you are usually entitled to recover your attorney fees upon prevailing, which is why we carefully weight your chances of success before taking this step.
